GSKM Student Policies

 

Attendance: Students are expected to attend all classes regularly and punctually. Attendance is very important and reflects your commitment level. If you are unable to attend a class, we are require that you phone in your absence in advance.

 

Participation and Homework: Students are expected to be willing to participate in all activities and classes. Because you will be challenged to step out into new areas of ministry and faith, there will certainly be grace and freedom to “grow” into participation. You will be encouraged and have hands-on assistance as you step out. We are not necessarily looking for the accomplished and competent, but rather the eager and hungry who are open to experience God’s kingdom and willing to participate as God equips and gives grace to accomplish it. There will be various homework assignments given to you. Part of becoming all that God has for you involves learning how to discipline yourself and manage your time and lifestyle. You must be prepared to take the time necessary to fully engage in your homework and not merely throw together assignments at the last minute. These are all heart issues rather than mere policy issues.

 

Withdrawal: Any student wishing to withdraw from GSKM must arrange an appointment with GSKM leadership to discuss reasons for wanting to leave. If a withdrawal occurs, GSKM leadership will handle tuition refunds/payments owed, on a case by case basis.

 

Standard of Conduct: Students will seek to be “imitators of God” with “not even a hint of sexual immorality, or any kind of impurity,” living as “children of light” and finding out “what pleases the Lord.” (Eph. 5:1-12) This standard is to be upheld within our personal and public lives.

 

Expulsions: GSKM reserves the right to remove individuals from the school who are refusing to comply with school policies and standards and biblical principles and ethics. This would include disrespect, discord, addictions, or immorality. Regular absenteeism may result in failure to receive a Certificate of Completion and/or possible expulsion from the school. Those who fall into this category will not be refunded their tuition.
